Gira KNX/EIB is an intelligent system that creates greater convenience, security and value through automation and remote control. Central device control operations, light scenes, occupancy simulation and time-controlled room heating, for instance, can be implemented using the Gira KNX/EIB system. Recurring processes – such as blind control or watering of the garden – can be automatically controlled at the desired times or depending on the weather conditions.
The prerequisite for this is that the user must have already opted for a KNX/EIB installation during the planning phase. KNX/EIB is initially just a green cable that is laid flush-mounted together with the power supply. The intelligence is added later. It is hidden in the touch sensors. These devices replace the conventional switches and send control commands via the bus lines – to lights, blinds, the music system and other KNX/EIB-capable devices.
Even complex solutions can be realised. However, it is then advisable to use a Gira HomeServer. This is where all the information is collated and where all the commands that turn radiators up or down, for example, and, in so doing, help to save energy, are sent from. Door intercoms, cameras and audio systems can also be integrated into the home control. All the functions can be easily operated using a central control unit such as the Gira Control Client, a PC or an iPhone or iPad.
